Self Storage

January 8th, 2022

Summer is when we always see the biggest shift in our customers’ storage needs. You get busier, which means we get busier, and we consider it our duty to make sure you’re well prepared.

Starting with the basics, it’s important to prioritize what you need to store this summer before it’s too late to do it.

Whether you have a bulky winter wardrobe, brand-new boat, or valuable family heirlooms, read on to find out why you need to act now and rent a storage unit with the best storage company in town. (That’s us!)


April showers bring May flowers, then Arkansas gets hit with a massive heat wave of humidity. If you don’t get your valuables stored away before summer hits, it can cause all kinds of negative impacts.

That’s why we always like to recommend renting a climate-controlled storage unit, especially for temperature-sensitive items like artwork, electronics, furniture, etc.

Don’t need to store these kinds of items? Reserve a drive-up accessible unit that makes it easy to make frequent visits to your storage unit.


Bulky winter wardrobes can take up precious space in your closet, especially if you plan to purchase new outfits for the season. Now is the time to put away winter coats and boots and pull out your swimsuits and flip flops!

By renting a storage unit for your seasonal clothing now versus later in the summer, you will save yourself so many headaches.If you need packing advice, we recommend using plastic bins or vacuum sealed storage bags to help prevent mildew. Dryer sheets or a few drops of essential oils can go a long way in keeping your clothing from developing a musty smell over the summer, too.


Are you excited to buy a new canoe, kayak, lawnmower, boat, motorcycle, or RV to enjoy this summer? You’re going to need more storage space at home!
